human traffickers will be tracked down – NAPTIP DG

Director-General of the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Person (NAPTIP), Julie Okah Donli has said efforts are going by the Federal Government in collaboration with the international community to track down trafficking syndicates  who specialized in luring young Nigerians abroad for slavery and sexual exploitation.

Donli spoke at the Murtala Mohammad International Airport (MMIA) cargo terminal during the arrival of another set of 258 stranded Nigerians from Libya, warning that organ sale has become a trend now.

According to the figures released by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), there were 229 adult males and 24 adult females and one female infant while there were four male children.

Four of them were brought with serious infirmity, according to the Director Search and Rescue, NEMA, Dr. Bandele Onimode.

The stranded Nigerians whose return was facilitated by the International Organization of Migration (IOM) arrived on a Airbus A330-200 with registration number 5A-LAT operated by Libyan Airline.

IOM has facilitated the arrival of more than 1000 Nigerians from Libya in 2017 alone and over 7000 from different countries since 2001 when its interventions on migrants started.
